Peak 2 Peak braving the storm today

BLACKCOMB CONDITIONS TODAY:

  • Stormy, snowy, foggy, Powdery, and windy up high
  • Windy up top and snowing moderately
  • Calm wind and snowing lightly on both mid-mountain and lower-mountain
  • The snow is pilling up fast up top and everything is soft and powdery
  • Great soft snow conditions all over the upper mountain
  • Tough visibility anywhere out of the trees
  • -14ºC at the top, -9ºC at mid-mt, -2º in the village @ 2pm

Glacier Express was quite windy at the top today

WHERE THE BEST SKIING WAS TODAY:

  • To be honest, we aren’t exactly sure…
  • It was good all over, but somewhere likely shined bright today
  • Everything off Crystal Chair and Glacier Express was good
  • No one out in the Glacier Chair zone
  • Great powder moguls off Glacier and chopped up powder right under the chair

Glacier Express line = Zero

CROWD FACTOR:

  • Some lines on lower and mid-mountain, no lines on upper mountain
  • The Blackcomb gondola had a 10+ minute line in the morning.
  • Whistler gondola had a line the extended out past the maze a ways in the am
  • Excelerator had a 10 minute early
  • Glacier Express had no line today
  • Jersey Cream had a 1-2 minute line
  • Peak 2 Peak had no line
  • The holidays have started, but most of the activity today was in the village
  • There was no one up high on the hill

Whistler “Cut” pillows are starting to look good. These aren’t for the faint of heart nor those suffering from Speluncaphobia.

WHAT WAS CLOSED TODAY: 

  • Blackcomb had 7th Heaven and the T-Bars closed due to wind
  • Whistler had Symphony and Peak Chair closed for the storm

A-LINE:

– A-Line over at Whistler was still good today but a bit slow due to the new snow.  Fun that you can hit the table-tops and land in the fresh snow on the side of the run.
